This year’s MKVS Symposium in Munich, Germany (23-25 October) will, just like every three years, highlight the latest developments and trends in gluing, finishing and printing with solvent-based, water-based and reactive systems as well as hotmelts into 28 highly topical, and even controversial lectures.

Among others, Prof Dr Dr Franz Durst from FMP Technology (Erlangen, Germany) will talk about “Energy Savings in the Paper Industry: What is theoretically possible and practically realisable.” Furthermore, Dr Klaus Noller from Fraunhofer IVV (Freising, Germany) will lecture on “Self-adhesive high-barrier films for OPC applications.” “Latest developments in Synthetic waxes for Water-Based Inks” will be the title of Stephen Armstrong’s lecture (Honeywell, Belgium).

Prof Dr Dirk Burth from the Faculty 05 for Paper and Packaging has been connected to the MKVS for 15 years already. In 2002, he was appointed to teach at the University for Applied Sciences in Munich, and therefore to the chair of the MKVS founder Prof Dr Knut Nitzl. In this way, the university and the MKVS have been interdisciplinary interconnected ever since.
